Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Trying to run the Desktop i386 install with CJK support, choose the Korean language: the installer seems hung at the "Erase entire disk and install" screen after clicking Next, there is a python stacktrace from the partitioner in /var/log/syslog.

Looks like it has an issue with the localized label for the device.

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Shut down the debconf-communicator instance started in DM.run. This
    should reduce the number of spurious crash reports we get.
  * KDE frontend:
    - Force the SIGCHLD handler installed by QProcessManager to use
      SA_RESTART, in the hope of avoiding problems with Python's lack of
      EINTR-safety (LP: #745014).
    - Show ext2 and btrfs in the same colour as ext3 and ext4, rather than
      in the same colour as free space.
  * localechooser/supported-locales only lists additional locales, so
    calculate the set of language packs to install using the union of it and
    debian-installer/locale (LP: #741304).
  * Do a quick check at startup to see if the debconf database is locked by
    something else, and exit slightly more gracefully than by raising an
    exception (LP: #746020).
  * GTK frontend:
    - Fix the partman plugin to convert the return value of
      gtk.TreeModel.get_value to Unicode before looking it up in a dict
      (LP: #746408).
  * Update translations from Launchpad (LP: #745924, #746500).
  * Automatic update of included source packages: flash-kernel 2.28ubuntu18.

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Clarify substitution variables in the debconf templates using comments.
